Swift's Landscape argues for a fundamental reevaluation of Jonathan Swift's place in eighteenth-century literary history. Combining history, biography, and literary criticism, Carole Fabricant restores both Swift's life and his writings to their proper landscape - by emphasizing the influence of the author's Irish involvements and environs on his work.
